1. Switched Digital Video
2. DRM EVERY show and lock it to the PC into which it was recorded
I personally LOVE my Media Center based PC using a Centon 4 channel Tuner with a Cable Card that I have used for about 6 or so years now but would LOVE to be able to use something else if it would work with my Tuner and Cable card setup. But there is NOT.
The problem is not the technology, it's the idiots who go buy a DJI with 0 idea of what they are doing and lose control and fly in places they should not.
The media then plays on the fears of the average joe who doesn't know the difference between a "Drone" after seeing images like this
preditor drone and this Multirotor
I build multirotors for people all the time, I fly them all the time, and I have yet to hurt anyone or anything other than the multirotor itself.
What democracy? In a democracy, you have a say. Here, you weren't even supposed to know about it for a minimum of 5 years after it took effect. Secret laws and all that.
We in the US have NEVER been a democracy.
We are a republic.
Remember in school when we had to say the Pledge of Allegiance?
"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands"
Does its TV Guide no longer suck?
When it can do those 2 simple things 1/2 as well as MediaCenter then maybe I'd consider using XMBC again, but until then MediaCenter is my go to software running on my media center machine.
There are some things in MCE that just flat out rock as well, the excellent guide, ease of recording, just everything. [Well except for the time it forgets to record your favorite show for no apparent reason]
So it looks like I'm going to keep it running 7 until something changes and peeps are allowed to connect to the cable card with little to no hindrance.
No. No I don't. Could not have happened to a more deserving corporation.
I do feel bad for the employees though so I'm not completely heartless.
The feeling of knowing what you're seeing or hearing is fake is indescribable.
Odd I seem to remember, in my youth, that acid was pretty much that to a T and I can describe it as pretty awesome.
That said I KNEW why it was happening and I am sure that is much different that having it happen for no good reason
Is it just me or does it seem like this could have been done a half century ago?
Non-MEMS Microphone -> Op Amp -> PID controller -> Buzzer
I actually don't understand what benefit is gleaned from using a MEMS microphone instead of an ordinary condenser one.
Size and price?
If someone wants me to type in my account and then my password I won't
I really won't
Common sense tells me that no one has any right to demand me to type in my account name/number and then my password
That is why I do not understand why there _are_ people who are simply void of any common sense
Ain't there enough stories of scams already? Why can't those people learn _anything_ from the mistakes of others?
Except in this case it does not. It asks for your name and email. Nowhere does it say anything about a password.
Doesn't creating a striped RAID make up most of the performance issues from using a HDD over a SSD? At that point, it's more the bus or CPU that's a limiting factor?
No. My raid0 and Raid5 setups don't even come CLOSE to comparing to my SSDs. I've been running 2 SSD Raid0 and OMG the speed diff is absolutly crazy. Yes when one does all data is toast and they DO die. I was dumb and bought 3 OCZ drives and all 3 have died at least once in the last 1.5 years but the replacements have held up pretty well.
I totally expect to lose one at any time so I have really good backups of my C: Drive
